Lakewood Theatre Co. – “God of Carnage”

March 3 - April 9

$30 - $32

Lakewood Theatre Company presents
God of Carnage
A Comedy of Manners Without The Manners

“Boys will be boys, but adults are usually worse… much worse.”

When two 11-year-old boys get into a fight at the park, their parents meet for the first time to discuss the disastrous outcome. Embarrassed at their sons’ openly physical display of hostility, each pair of parents sets out to prove that violence is savage behavior… instead opting for the more civil tactics of passive aggression. In attempting to act like the adults they are, their strained polite conversations devolve into immature arguments, proving that these parents are just as bad as their children. Originally written in French as La Dieu du Carnage by playwright Yasmina Reza and translated by Christopher Hampton, God of Carnage has received critical acclaim in France, in London’s West End and on Broadway where it received the 2009 Tony Award for Best Play. Its overall global success proves that the distinction between civil and savage behavior is a human struggle in every language.
